This is one o the most fabulous pieces I have ever seen! Schreiner outdid himself on this runway delight of Swarovsky Crystals in the luscious clear pink teardrop shaped stones. Add to this the inverted stones that only add to the beauty, style and grace of the design. The pin is actually 5 and 1/4 inches long and mounted in silver colored metal that is stamped Schreiner New York on the back. Please note the special hook on the pin that hooks into the ring that is attached to the 19 inch long snake chain. This is the only designer that I have ever seen use such a secure conversion feature; You could attach other pins to this chain if you wished. In addition to the chain there is a 3 inch pink stone studded extension wish a hook for adding the length if you need it. The quality and workmanship is unequalled and is one of the things this designer is noted for. All Schreiner jewelry I(founded 1951 - ceased in the 70's) is hand made and never was mass produced. It is rare and in high demand.
